An account in more than 1 000 pages
Starting with a core of 117 men who made up the Stabswache in 1933, the Leibstandarte, Hitler’s personal bodyguard, became an elite motorized unit, then a brigade then a division. It distinguished itself in Poland, in the West and first made itself notorious in the Balkans where in particular, Kurt Meyer distinguished himself.  After that it was the fighting on the Eastern Front, at the forefront of astonishing victories. Then, after 1943, it started to illustrate itself in the big battles, at Kharkov and at Kursk. It then disarmed the Italian army, fought in Normandy, in the Ardennes then in the ultimate fighting in Hungary and even in Berlin for some of its units. This military history is illustrated with portraits of officers who became famous, but also photos of equipment. A fabulous document which will make its mark, a limited edition which has to be in any library worth its name.
